8:00 pm
you're watching al jazeera america live from new york city. i'm jonathan betz, with a look at the top stories. pakistan condemns a u.s. drone strike that killed a leader of the taliban there. one politician threatening to cut off nato supply routes. >> he indicated anger and malice towards the tsa officers. >> investigators look at what may have motivated the fatal attack at los angeles international airport. >> two french journalists are abducted and killed in northern mali. the same area where the government helped to defeat those fighters months ago.
8:01 pm
. pakistan's enemy number one is dead. hakimullah mehsud was killed in a u.s. drone strike along with four others. but the pakistani government and politicians are denouncing the killing, saying the strike derailed planned peace talks. >> the efforts have been ambushed. it was not acquired from the front. it was an ambush. we see it as an ambush. >> pakistani taliban fighters secretly buried their leader on saturday, but vowed a wave of rerevenge suicide bombings. some pakistani lawmakers are demanding that u.s. supply lines into afghanistan be blocked as a response. >> the chief minister is standing here with me.
8:02 pm
they have decided that god willing the assembly will pass a unanimous declaration not to allow nato supply to enter the province until the drone attacks have been stopped. >> rosalind jordan joins us from washington with more on this. what are pakistani leaders accusing the u.s. government of? >> well, there are two things that the pakistani deposit is accusing the obama administration of doing. one of violating pakistani sovereignty by launching a military attack on pakistani soil without islamabad's permission. the other thing that islamabad is accusing washington of doing is essentially scuttling - that's the pakistani's word, an effort to broker peace talks with the taliban. the pakistani's are arguing with the death of hakimullah mehsud, everything that they have been trying to achieve has been put back to square one.
8:03 pm
as a result the pakistani citizens will be at a higher risk of suffering from taliban attacks within the borders. >> hasn't the pakistani government been cooperating with the u.s. and the c.i.a. drone program all along. >> it's quite by assumed that the pakistani government has cooperated with the bush administration and the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks - some would argue out of a sense that the pakistanis haven't been doing enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activity within its borders. recently there was a front-page story in "the washington post" outlining in detail not just how much access the pakistani government tacetly was giving to washington, but the pakistanis were getting top-level intelligence briefings about the
8:04 pm
targets and strategies used in deciding when to launch the attacks. it is worth keeping note, however, that pakistani citizens do not like the drone attacks. it is not surprising you would see a vociferous objection from the highest levels in the government because they have to find a way to placate the citizens. >> if it's killing someone who terrorized so many pakistanis, why the call for accountability? >> nawaz sharif, who was the prime minister, was re-elected to be prime minister. he's not been on the job for six months yet. so it is essential to his staying in power to say to pakistani citizens, i hear your concerns and fares, and i'm trying to -- fears and i'm trying to do my best to stand up to washington to prevent these attacks from happening. there was a family which travelled from pakistan to
8:05 pm
washington to tell members of congress the impact of one drone strike on the family. they weren't the targets. they lost their grandmother in what could be described as collateral damage. it's something this terrified people and makes them feel they can't trust washington that says it was a close ally of pakistan. >> have we heard from the white house today? >> we have not heard from the white house, but a senior administration official who is telling al jazeera that while the administration can't confirm that hakimullah mehsud was killed on friday in this drone strike, or that khan said has become the new head of the pakistani taliban, the official goes on to say that in the u.s.'s few the pakistani taliban is an enemy of the united states, and so it will work with the pakistani government to try to bring it to heel.
8:06 pm
>> rosalind jordan in washington. thank you. >> and sakhan said has been nam the new leader. we explain how and why he's been lected. >> this is the pakistani taliban's new leader. khan said is in his mid 30s. he was appointed by a council of senior taliban commanders, securing 43 out of 60 votes. some factions of the band -- banned organizations made up of 30 affiliated groups are pushing for other candidates to take the top job. khan said is well-known. he is thought to have planned an attack on a gaol in north-west pakistan, that killed 400 prisoners and an attack on an air force base. >> khan said was a trusted lieutenant of a former leader hakimullah mehsud who was killed in a drone strike on friday.
8:07 pm
>> the interior minister condemned the c.i.a.-led strike saying the attack harmed the peace process getting under way between the government and taliban, and that u.s.-pakistan cooperation would be reviewed. many pakistanis are angry at what the c.i.a. did. >> translation: americans have no right to cause this destruction. i believe it was criminal >> translation: the person killed in the american drone attack was a muslim. he was our brother it should not have happened. there should be no drone attacks in the first place. >> translation: it makes the process of dialogue difficult when hakimullah mehsud is dead. taliban will not be ready for peace talks. dialogue can only take place when there's peace from both sides. >> privately the pakistani government, military will be
8:08 pm
pleased with hakimullah mehsud's death. during his time as leader he was able to carry out several attacks against a state that claimed thousands of lives. there are a few details about the pakistani taliban's leader. some suggest that khan said is the most moderate of the contenders. his election, they insist, means that the peace process started by the government could possibly still go through. but with the pakistani taliban vowing to revenge the death of the former leader, hakimullah mehsud. it's all but certain there'll be more violence ahead of talks. >> we are learning new details about the suspect in yesterday's shooting at los angeles international airport. if convicted he could face the death penalty for charges of murdering a federal officer and committing violence at an airport. authorities say 23-year-old paul ciancia left a note at the crime scene indicating whom he was
8:09 pm
targetting. >> the defendant paul ciancia - we are looking into his background. i know you have a lot of questions on his background. we are still examining that. that is an extensive process, it will take time. we do know, based on the complaint, that he - and based on evidence we reviewed - that he targeted specifically tsa officers. his intent was clear in his note - we did recover a note at the crime scene. in that note he indicated his anger and his malice - i would say - towards the tsa officers. there is a video of the accident as stated in the complaint. that video shows the defendant's activities during the crime yesterday. >> brian rooney joins us live from lax. what else did we learn today?
8:10 pm
>> well, they are getting into this. one thing we don't know is exactly why he tarted tsa -- targeted tsa agents. we don't know that he had a bad experience or worked for the tsa. that is still somewhat of a mystery. someone who has not gotten as much mention is the man who was killed yesterday, the transportation security officer, gerardo i. hernandez, and his wife spoke. really, she was rather elegant and composed when she talked about her husband. >> he was a wonderful husband, father, brother, son and friend. he would have been 40 next week. i am truly devastated. we are all heartbroken and will miss him dealer. thank you very much. >> really sad to hear something like that.
8:11 pm
so the fbi says that they are going to build a full profile of paul ciancia to see exactly what did drive him to do this. he's lived in los angeles about a year and a half, originally from pennsville new jersey. nobody yet has said that there was any signal that he was going to do this or it would happen. >> what happens next in the fbi's investigation? >> they'll go over - you know, where he lives, talking to his friends, his family, electronic communications, where he got the gun, how he got to the airport. we are told he was dropped off. probably the fbi knows who dropped him off. everything from a to b they will go over, including every shell casing, where the ammunition came from. if you think of it, they'll look into it. >> a lot of work to do and a lot of questions. >> is going
